Hi Jerry,

Re: Sir Ben Kingsley and noSir Anthony Hopkins. A few years ago I read that Kingsley insists on the honorific in any introduction - which says a lot about Kingsley's opinion of himself. I thought he was mildly skewed in his appearance on the Sopranos when Christopher referred to him as "Sir Kingsley" on at least one occasion.

Anthony Hopkins? He only seems to care about the roles he plays - not vestiges of Imperial times.

Down the Monarchy!!!

Uh, that should be "skewered" not "skewed" in my above post.

I think your review was perfect! I agree with everything you said.

Thanks Jerry. I enjoyed your review/critique. I always watch the Oscars too though it seems like I see less and less of the nominated movies by the time this show rolls around. Eventually I see them but like you said I try to see Oscar night no matter what.

Jerry,
Thanks for the report. I didn't watch the show yesterday(weather is too pretty to sit here and watch TV),so I appreciate the highlights.
It is interesting, I loved Sean Penn in Milk, and I was thinking he should win for it.

I thought Hugh Jackman did a great job.

I also enjoyed the format they used for best actor/actress where five former winners told a little bit about each nominee.

It's the best Oscar show in years!

Barbara

Of course I didn't get to watch the Oscars, but I enjoyed your review. Now I have to find that Miley Cyrus quote you mentioned.....

Hi Jerry, I loved reading your Oscar review. IMHO Hugh did good, but my favorite host is still Billy Cyrstal. I really liked how they brought past winners to introduce the nominees. That was creative this year. And I was very excited to see Sophia Loren introduce another great, Meryl Streep.

Thanks for writing this great post!

Annie

Loved your recap! I only watched the beginning and then went to sleep. Wish I'd "seen" your imaginary catfight, LOL.

Marcia

I did enjoy your report, Jerry, as I am one of those people who always watch and yet sometimes wonder why. As for Miley Cyrus, well, why the heck she and that twitty couple Zac/Vanessa were even there boggles the mind (yes, I know they're Disney $$$ makers and Disney owns ABC, but still). I belong to the category of people who thought Hugh did just fine, but perhaps it was because I was in awe of talents I had no idea he had. Now onto next year . . .

I loved Hugh Jackman as host and loved the musical numbers as well. But what do I know? LOL. I have not even seen any movies lately. Nada,

Then I heard over the radio this morning that Beyonce was lip-synching the songs in that big musical that she did with Hugh... Oh, well, life goes on....

I enjoyed your program review, Jerry. Thank you.

Thanks Doug - I guess it is all in pretension. *smile* We Canucks would know nothing about that.

It sounds as if we were all on the same page with our thoughts and feelings on the Oscars!
